, the intelligence that sparked all this was a communication from osama bin ladin's replacement, ayman al zawahiri to the head of the al qaeda arm in yemen. the terrorist leaders discussed plotting an attack to coincide with a in muslim holy day this week. this afternoon nbc news is reporting that one reason the u.s. reacted so aggressively is because al qaeda operatives said they wanted an attack that, quote, would change the balance of power in the region. well, as american counter terrorist officials are dealing with this threat, some on the right are using it to hit the president as weak on national security. big surprise there. take a look what bill kristol and former senator jim demint said this weekend on fox. >> four years ago, president obama gave a much heralded speech, his outreach to the muslim world. now four years later we're closing embassies throughout the arab world. a year ago he said al qaeda is on the run. now we seem to be on the run. i'm not criticizing the decision to close the embassies. that's probably the right thing to do for the sake of trying to save american lives and

is alive and osama bin laden is dead and the construction of core al-qaeda and noncore al-qaeda is part of this. the president has taken a more capacious view of islamism and running the whole spectrum like from the muslim brotherhood whom he supported for their bid once upon a time. they are islamist and they are moderate with whom the united states can do business. and all the way over to including what they call and what jay carney calls core al-qaeda that these are radical islamist and theocrates that want to impose the twisted form of this phase on to countries. and the gradient delineations across the spectrum of what it is to be an islamist and mustheocrat gets the administration in role tangles as they try to explain the difference between good, bad, different and inside and outside. what americans know when you close down 19 embassy and withdrawing all american personnel out of the strugem. americans who reasonably ignore or try to ignore what is happening in that part of the world are called to attention. >> let me jump in for a second. i will talk to congressman peter king on
